    World music songstress Eleanor is issuing a vibrant and festive video of the alluring title track of her latest release, “Listen To The Music,” filmed in Mexico and NYC. The song is a Latin-flavored, dance friendly distillation of Dubinsky’s artistic intent.
    She says: “I am so pleased with ‘Listen To The Music’ because it’s uplifting and inclusive. It’s meant to bring people together through music – Latin, North American, European, African – it’s a song for everyone.” She sings with tender conviction and compassion: "I’m a container and I’ll hold your suffering/I will transform it into this song that we sing/Come on and be with me, make the world a better place/Let this rhythm put a smile on your face."

Track Name: Listen To The Music (Escucha la musica)
Let’s all come together
And dance to the music
My sisters and brothers
Let’s love one another

I am contagious, I am the melody I sing
I am the music that makes you want to dance with me
I am the children, who are living in the street
Wondering and wondering if they will get enough to eat

I’m a container and I’ll hold your suffering
I will transform it into this song that we sing
Come on and be with me, make the world a better place
Let this rhythm put a smile on your face

So put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground!

Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music

I am the beginning
And this feeling that I bring ignites the music
It makes all the bells ring
In all the churches, the mosques and the temples too
Come on now people, show me what you can do!

So put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Shake your body, shake your body, shake it to the ground

Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music
Escucha la musica, listen to the music

Let’s all come together, and dance to the music
My sisters and brothers, let’s love one another
Let’s all come together, and dance to the music
My sisters and brothers, we’re all a part of the same world

All the people in the cars, the couples in the bars
I wanna see you wanna see you wanna see you get up
I wanna see you move, I wanna see you groove
Sing along sing
Put your hands on your hips, turn it all around
Right hand, left hand and shake it to the ground
Put your hands on your hips, come on
Shake your body shake your body shake it!

Baila a la musica, dance to the music

Track Name: Shelter (NYC version)
Starts out sweet and then it tastes bitter
The light it hits so right you think it's a painting

But it's not, It's so hot
And I gotta get out gotta get out gotta get out 

Your lips they touch my bruises like a salve
And the coolness of your fingers
Makes me blush
I wanna stay


But it’s hot
It’s hot in here
And I gotta get out gotta get out
gotta get out gotta get out

I gotta get out gotta get out
gotta get out gotta get out

Shelter
Baby, we're in this thing together
Naked under covers with my lover
Then I am red lying in your bed
All of this power
All of this pleasure
All this trouble when I met you I was in a bubble
First there was one now there are two
And I, I have to choose
Do I choose you
Oh, Shelter

-Instrumental-

Starts out sweet and then it tastes bitter
And the light it hits so right you think it's a painting
But it's not
It's so hot

And I gotta get I gotta get I gotta get I gotta get I gotta get out
I gotta get I gotta get I gotta get out
I gotta get I gotta get I gotta get out

Como los viejos mi amor
Como los viejos mi amor
Bailamos lento
Como los viejos mi amor

Bailamos lento

Me miras desde lejos
Conozco tu boca
Conozco (?) tus ojos
Vamos pasando
Anos y anos
Llegando a ser un solo cuerpo

Como los viejos mi amor
Como los viejos mi amor
Bailamos lento
Como los viejos mi amor

And I know your hands too

We’ll go on
Year after year
Until we become
One my dear

Let’s dance slow
So slow
Like the old folks
My love

Track Name: Jeu de Deux (NYC version)
Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux
Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux

Tu es partie
Tu fais partie de moi
Et nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux

Tu es un mirage
Tu es un ideal
Tu es une image
Un montage
Et

Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux
Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux

4/4 and dynamic picks up:
Je construis
Une tour d’amour
Je suis en train de detruire
Cette illusion au four

je me sens animé
plus diminuée
c’est qui devant moi
e me leve et je m’en vais
de toi
et

Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux
Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux


Bridge, percussion breaks:
Yellow is the color
Of the light that surrounds me
Fields of sunflowers
Oh…fields of sunflowers
Fields…yellow fields
I pass them by I pass them by… I pass them by on my bike…
(hanging pause 2 measures)

Percussion back in, 4/4 feel out:
Nous jouons le jeu
Le jeu de deux…
